Going cold turkey when you want to quit smoking is something that many people try and struggle with, as nicotine is so highly addictive. However, there are many different tools you can consider using that can help make it a much more manageable task so you can start living your life smoke-free. You will need to research the different options available to you and decide which is best. It is worth speaking to your doctor about the various options or NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) you can use. Some of the most common ones are listed below to help you get started and get rid of your addiction to cigarettes once and for all.
Vaping devices are one of the most popular tools that millions worldwide use to help them quit smoking. When you visit your local vape shop, you will see there is a wide and varied selection of vaping devices from which you can choose, and you can split these into two distinct types, which are as follows:
MTL (Mouth-To-Lung): An MTL device is where you take a drag on the vaping device and take the vape smoke into your mouth first before inhaling it into your lungs.
DTL (Direct-To-Lung): A DTL device is similar to an MTL, but you take the vape smoke back directly into your lungs without holding it first.
The vape juice you can use with your device is available in many different flavours, and there are also plenty of nicotine-strength options to help you manage your cravings.
Another popular NRT that millions worldwide use to help them quit smoking cigarettes is nicotine patches, which are discreet and simple to use. The nicotine patches are available from supermarkets, pharmacies, and online retailers, and there are available in different nicotine strengths. You place a patch on any part of your skin, and it will absorb the nicotine released by the patch over 24 hours, keeping a constant level of nicotine in your system and preventing cravings. You only require one patch daily, and it can help you go through your day without worrying about wanting to have a cigarette, leaving you free to get on with your life.
Nicotine Chewing Gum
One of the first NRTs developed was nicotine chewing gum, which many people use to help them control their urges for a cigarette. You also tend to find that people using other NRTs will use nicotine chewing gum when they struggle to control their urges using their primary NRT. You can purchase nicotine chewing gum in most supermarkets, newsagents, pharmacies, and online retailers, and it is available in a few different flavours and varying nicotine strengths. Whenever you feel an urge to smoke getting stronger, start chewing a piece of nicotine gum, and the feeling will soon go away.
These are three of the most popular NRTs people use to help them quit smoking, but more options are available. Speak with your doctor and discuss the pros and cons of each, and you can soon start living your life smoke-free without needing to have a cigarette.
